Settle down, little whippersnapper.  I have an awesome life.  I did not pay for Olive Tree, and they can sync across devices.  Apple can.  Kindle can.  Several apps can.  Yet the program I paid a LOT of money for seems to be unable to do it.  As to it actually happenbing, I have heard that line for many months.

Now, take a few deep breaths, put down your GI Joe and barbie that you got Christmas, and learn to respect your betters.  When I pay this much for something, I am entitled to speak my mind.  I served in the Army so that I could have freedom of speech.  I do not need a brown noser to tell me I can't.

Steve, I suggest that you step back, and read what you just wrote.... the rest of have and are very offened by your attitude.  Can you speak your mind... give your opinion... sure, and that is the very right that you fought for, but to belittle anyone is no part of that right, and most importantly, what happened to being a child of God, redeemed, and following his will?  What about the 8th commandment, and yes, even logos may need to look at stating the whole truth in their advertising and change their advertising to reflect how the app actually works at the present time, however, I still beleive (because I am using the software and it is working pretty well) that reading plans, notes, and even highlights are just days away... , most likely will be here before they could even get new adds out.  Now, it is certainly your right to dissagree with me, to state your own opinion, but not to be rude or to slander anyone.  Please reread and rethink your last post... especially when you say "your betters" What makes you better than anyone else... I believe that God would still call you a sinner, just as He calls the rest of us.  That makes us equal and not better than another.  Think about what I state here, and please pray about it, don't try to justify yourself, instead repent, and seek forgiveness... the truth of the software will resolve itself...

Rev.  Perhaps you should learn to be a little more fair and less biased.  I responded to someone telling me to get a life.  

 

Now, it appears you believe THAT was being "Christian" and "Charitable", but I did not.  And I am free to speak my mind, especially when what I got was not free, but paid for by my hard-earned money.

And I did not slander anyone.  In fact, if you believe what I said slander, then you must agree with Bama who said I have no life.  Which, since I DO have a life, was "slander" that you apparently approved of.

Now, IF you are a Reverend, I would expect a little more fairness.

 

And though YOU might be offended by what I write, you are not obligated to read it.  I am offended that I have been hearing promises of highlighting for a very long time and went ahead and paid my "hundreds of dollars" based on that promise.

And since I paid for a product, I am certainly within my rights to proffer my complaints.

Rick, as a disabled Vet, I could care less what you believe.  I did not mention it for anything other than what I typed.  To show that I have a right to voice my feelings.

 

And, based on y'alls posts, it appears that charity is only expected from certain people in the "Christian" world.

You are correct, you do not show much charity.

Let us assume, for the moment, that I have not shown charity.  The Bible says to turn the other cheek.  Instead, I have one person tell me to get a life and a Reverand accept that, but chastize me for my response.  Perhaps I just misunderstand the Bible.

Am I irritated?  Yes.  I paid a lot of money for a product because I was told that this would be available by the end of the year.  Whenever I ask, I hear "soon".  I have been hearing "soon" for many months.

I apologize if I have offended anyone.  

 

And Rick, thank you you for serving, too.

Steve, I apologize. As soon as I posted what I deleted earlier I knew I should delete it, you just beat me to it. I was hoping that the five minutes that it was there would be a short of enough time to delete it without anyone seeing.

And yes, I have problems. One of them is that it is easy for me to look out the window and judge other people but very hard to look into the mirror. Another is that sometimes my emotions overcome sensibility.

I guess it is a good thing that I have never been called into a leadership position within the church.

Rick, truly no need to apologize.  This is a discussion board.  I believed it was a place to vent, request, praise and just chat.  Today, I vented.  I have been an Olive Tree user forever, and love it because of the highlighting, etc.  But, I thought I would take a shot and try Logos, even though almost all of my studying is on my ipad and iphone.  I was told we would have the highlighting by the end of the year.  That was important to me because I wanted to do my yearly Bible Reading Plan starting January 1.  Now, it seems I will have to use Olive Tree again.

At a time where funds were short, I paid for something based on what I was told and, yes, I am a tad irritated that Logos seems to have so much trouble with this.

Thanks for your post.  It was very welcomed.

Steve I am glad to see that you Rick have apologized to each other. but in the process of your punching at logos, you decided not to go to Logos personally, and instead brought your beef to this forum, which anyone who has been here for a while, knows that Logos frequently does not reply to... so instead of speaking to logos who might well have been able to have given you a refund, you belittled other users.  If you don't like the product, so be it, no one requires you to like it... go ahead and let logos know that you want your money back, but please do not smack the rest of us in the chops as you vent.  We can not help you get your money back, nor make the reading lists appear on your device, only logos can do that.  Now, there was no bias in my post, I would have said what I said to anyone who said what you said.  I suspect that you are more upset at me for pointing your short coming out than my saying that you harmed another person, I am sorry for making you feel that way, yet, to ignore the truth does not rectify the situation.  I am thankful for both of your services to our country, but frankly, your vet status makes no difference to the app and how it works. And, if I could have found your email address, I would have sent this to you off list to keep it between us, but we don't have that option.  I hope that we can get back to a peaceful and friendly discussion of the benefits and short comings of the app.

Kelly, you are simply wrong.  I was not upset at your comments.  I was just amazed that you were so biased.  Someone told me to get a life...it was very rude.  I responded.  You chose to chastize me and not the one who first took it personal to other users.

 

This is twice you have gotten it wrong.  I certainly hope you fare better in your congregation, should you have one.  In the meantime, you have lost credibility with me as to your usefulness as a pastor, if you really are one.

This is a forum.  We are allowed to vent.  I vented.  Sorry if that was over your head.

Steve, I am a Reverand, and I am very sorry that you treat the rest of us the way that you do... I already stated that I did not see the first post to you, had I, I would have said the same thing to them... As for my congregation, things are very well thank you. But just as I pointed out in my first post, you continue to belittle people, and now me.  If you can not see where you have errored, then there is no sense in continuing this discussion...

Treat people?  I voiced a complaint to a business I paid money to.  Someone belittled me, I responded.  Then you chastised my response without (still) saying anything to person who first belittled.  Then Rick and I had a conversation, and thru conversing, worked things out.

 

So, though you claim "people", there have been

 

1. a company to whom I paid a product and to whom told me something would happen that did not happen.

2. a person who told me to get a life

3. You, who was bias and wrong about my intentions

4. A person with whom no disagreement now exists as we both apologized.

So, when you say "people", you are not being entirely truthful.  

As a Reverend, you have been biased, wrong, and borderline dishonest.  I guess the bar is pretty low in your parish if things are going great.  I expect more from my religious leaders.

Peace and Joy and a Blessed and Happy New Year to my Brothers and Sisters on the Logos Forums!     

                                          *smile*

              In less than three hours it will be a New Year here in Eastern Canada.  I’ve been meditating on many things; and above all thankful to God for so many Blessings in life and for the Forgiveness of sin through the Blood of my Saviour Jesus Christ.

              Also this evening am meditating on the old Isaac Watts famous hymn that is part of almost all of our hymnals across our various denominations:

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.

Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defense is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

Thy Word commands our flesh to dust,
“Return, ye sons of men:”
All nations rose from earth at first,
And turn to earth again.

A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

The busy tribes of flesh and blood,
With all their lives and cares,
Are carried downwards by the flood,
And lost in following years.

Time, like an ever rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly, forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

Like flowery fields the nations stand
Pleased with the morning light;
The flowers beneath the mower’s hand
Lie withering ere ‘tis night.

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home.

                        As you are in the last hours of this year also (or the first hours of 2012!) and maybe the last hours or years of your life or that of a loved one, please consider this Word from our Sponsor as I hope we try to put an end to this truly very miserable and unpleasant and unfriendly thread.  It doesn’t become us as Followers of Christ!                  Indeed!

Here is the Word from our Sponsor!            *smile*

Colossians 3:12–17 (ESV)

12Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,

13bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Ephesians 5:15–21 (ESV)

15Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,

16making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,

19addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

20giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

21submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

 

 

 

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........
